The manuscripts that are accompanied by graphic materials must have a List of the illustrations and references about their place and succession in the text (or at the end of the text), along with indications depicting what the illustrations represent.
  • The editorial staff do not accept materials without a critical apparatus.
  1. References
  • Papers should contain only footnotes, in continuous numbering.
  • In the content of the note, the order of the data is as follows: author’s first name, family name, title of the work (in italics), volume, place of publication, publisher, year of publication, page.
  • In some cases, the publisher does not mention the year of publication. Then, instead of the year, enter w.y. (=without year).

Examples: Cezar Avram, Regimuri politice comparate. Fascism, Nazism, Stalinism, Craiova, Aius Publishing, 2008, pp. 42-44.

  • If in the notes are made more references to the same work, proceed as follows:
    • When reference is made immediately after the first mention of the work, the data is substituted by Ibidem,after which, when necessary, mention the page number(s).
    • When a new reference to the same work follows after several footnotes, give only the name of the author, the rest of the data being supplemented by op. cit. (with italics), followed by the page number(s).
    • When an author is cited with several works, interspersed with other footnotes, give the name of the author, title of the work (which may be abbreviated, in italics), then the page number(s).
    • When an author is cited, successively, with several papers, his name is replaced by
    • When the author quotes not from a primary source, but from another book, enter the word apud (after).
    • An author can be put in a position to cite information from a large number of pages of a single work. To avoid the risk of introducing a multitude of footnotes, may introduce, in this case, a single footnote in which, instead of page numbers, is inserted the term passim (everywhere).
